The Independent Culture
Sharman Macdonald has two premieres this Spring. The first, The Winter Guest, begins previews at the West Yorkshire Playhouse tomorrow starring Phyllida Law. It is directed by Alan Rickman who, together with Ruby Wax, commissioned the play. The pr oduction transfers to the Almeida in March.

Theatre de Complicite's triumphant success The Three Lives of Lucie Cabrol (above) returns to London for six weeks prior to an International tour. On no account miss this, the Independent's theatrical highlight of last year. The aptly named Show of Strength have unearthed Githa Sowerby's passionate Victorian drama A Man and Some Women in a production by Caroline Hunt, ex-director of the much-missed CV1 company. This long-overdue revival at Quakers' Friars in Bristol closes on 28 Jan. Finally, anyone with post-festive depression should sneak off to She Loves Me, at the Savoy. The height of theatrical innovation? Hardly. Pleasurable? Completely.
